Hi all.

I want to use the RoundUp function that is used in Excel (Rounds a number up, away from 0) in Crystal Reports, but it does not work.

Is there a similar function, if not, how do I get Crystal to round up?

Thank you in advance.

The  function in excel is like this: Roundup(number, numberofDigitstoRound)

Roundup(0.1470, 2) = 0.15

Roundup(0.1838, 2) = 0.19

Roundup(2.1840, 2) = 2.19

Roundup(1, 2) = 1

Thanks mlmcc, but when the following the number is 0 it rounds it up to 0.01 and it should be equal to 0.

In excel:  Roundup(0,2) = 0

Any idea?

I did something like this:

if Number= 0 then
    formula = 0

else
formula = Round( Number + .005, 2)

end if


----------------
Does that look right?

Now I noticed a problem, when the number is 9.4500 it rounds it to 9.46 when it should be 9.45
